A Twitter user is seeking help for a nursing mother who was allegedly beaten by her husband at their home in the Ogba area of Lagos state today.
Twitter user @sama_on_point who shared the video online, gave the name of the nursing mother’s Mrs. Ngozi and her husband, Mr. Henry. He wrote
”THIS IS MRS NGOZI AFTER SHE WAS BATTERED BY HER HUSBAND, MR HENRY TODAY. THIS IS A RECURRING BATTERING AS REPORTED BY NEIGHBOURS. SHE LIVES WITH HER HUSBAND AT 3 MAFO CLOSE, YAYA ABATAN OFF ABEOKUTA STREET, OGBA, LAGOS. RESCUE THIS LADY PLEASE!”
In the video online, a female neighbor could be heard asking the woman to pack her things and leave the house as being married isn’t by force.
The Lagos state Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team DSVRT and the National Human Rights Commission NHRC have both reacted to the video.
